Exeter Chiefs and England winger Jack Nowell has been ruled out for eight weeks with a hamstring injury.

The 25-year-old suffered the injury while training with Eddie Jones' side, having featured in the games against South Africa, New Zealand and Japan.

"Jack's got a pretty significant hamstring tear," director of rugby Rob Baxter told the Exeter website.

"Ironically, he should be back in time to fight for a place in the Six Nations."

The Chiefs are next in Premiership action on Friday evening when they travel to face Harlequins.
